We have walnut floors and used Waterlox Tung Oil. It’s a penetrating oil that also protects, but I worry that it would look too finished, even with a matte. This looks pretty nice though and it seems to me that thin veneer could dry out over a longer period of time.

I would expect the trim in the car to have a finish that would have it sealed and not let an oil penetrate. Would be concerned with long term clouding if going rogue with treatments.

It's not sealed or at least mine was not, it was so rough when I first got it that it looked like they just cut a piece of wood and glued it there without finishing it. As far as clouding / buildup goes, that was my concern which is why I used this for several weeks before making the video.
